Ansvr on W10


#1

I’ve just moved to Windows 10 and while Ansvr is working there’s a small change. When it starts I get a blank window displayed. The title is C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Local\cygwin-ansvr\bin\perl.exe

It goes away when the solve completes.
This isn’t a major thing but I wonder if there’s some way to not get the window displayed, maybe starting it minimised.

Ansvr 0.16

#2

I had the same issue, but it went away by reinstalling Ansvr.


#3

I did an update but it didn’t help, did you do some sort of full reinstall?

Chris


#4

Yes, I did a full reinstall. I uninstalled Ansvr and then installed it again. Just the update did not help me either.


#5

Tried an uninstall and a download and ful install, including downloading the index file again.
Now Ansvr doesn’t work at all. The Ansvr Log shows this:

Waiting for data… (interrupt to abort)

There seem to be errors reporting “Resource Temporarily uavailable”, is that a useful clue.
I installed using the Windows installer to the default positions.
The Ansvr config runs and the data looks sensible.

Chris,

We have seen some reports of these kinds of failures in the past and on investigation they have all turned out to be caused by anti-virus software. I’m not sure if that is the problem in your case, but it would be worth a try to temporarily disable your antivirus software to see if it make s the problem go away.

I haven’t had any other antivirus than Windows Defender in a long time, so I doubt it’s antivirus-related.
